### Boats follow at a spacing of 10 meters, as this is measured from bow to bow it means the gap between boats is actually what?

• A.

10m

• B.

4.5m

• C.

14.5m

B. 4.5m
Explanation
The spacing between boats is measured from bow to bow, which means it includes the length of one boat. Since the spacing is given as 10 meters, and the length of one boat is also 10 meters, the actual gap between boats is the spacing minus the length of one boat, which is 10m - 10m = 0m. Therefore, the correct answer is 4.5m.

### You have just launched your Trinity 500 and your Suzuki DF2.5 engine is running, when you select drive (gear) and go to accelarate the engine makes lots of noise but the boat does not move. What is the most likely cause?

• A.

The Killcord is not attached

• B.

There is too much oil in the engine

• C.

The Propeller has fallen off

• D.

The Shear pin has broken

D. The Shear pin has broken
Explanation
The most likely cause for the engine making lots of noise but the boat not moving is that the shear pin has broken. The shear pin is a small metal pin that connects the propeller to the engine shaft. Its purpose is to break under excessive strain or impact, protecting the engine from damage. When the shear pin breaks, the propeller is no longer able to transfer power from the engine to the water, resulting in the engine revving but the boat not moving.

• A.

To allow the press a better photo opportunity (PR is important)

• B.

In order to maintain the correct spacing behind the boat in front (it is important to keep the formation as accurate as possible)

• C.

When towards the inside of a bend (as you will have less distance to travel than the the boats on the outside of the bend)

• D.

To communicate with a nearby boat (As the VHF carried on each Trinity is for listening and emergency only)

• E.

For the Safety of your Crew (as crew safety is more important than any other consideration)

C. When towards the inside of a bend (as you will have less distance to travel than the the boats on the outside of the bend)

Explanation
The coxswain may slow their boat down in order to maintain the correct spacing behind the boat in front, as it is important to keep the formation as accurate as possible. Additionally, when towards the inside of a bend, slowing down is necessary as the boats on the outside of the bend will have to travel a greater distance. Lastly, slowing down for the safety of the crew is crucial, as crew safety should always be prioritized over any other consideration.

### While in formation there is a special MOB procedure which sees the MOB being picked up by a pace boat, all other boats including the casulty's own boat maintaining formation.

• A.

True, it would be dangerous for a boat to break formation and try to manoeuvre in the middle of the fleet.

• B.

False, we have been trained to pick up our own casulaties so that's what we will do on the day.

A. True, it would be dangerous for a boat to break formation and try to manoeuvre in the middle of the fleet.
Explanation
The correct answer is True because breaking formation and trying to maneuver in the middle of the fleet can pose a safety risk. The MOB procedure involves a pace boat picking up the MOB while the other boats, including the casualty's own boat, maintain formation. This ensures that the fleet remains organized and reduces the chances of accidents or collisions. By attempting to pick up the casualty on their own, a boat would disrupt the formation and potentially cause chaos or accidents. Therefore, it is safer for the boats to maintain formation and let the designated pace boat handle the rescue operation.

• D.

Coxswain to give the order "out oars" and attempt to maintain position in the formation under oars.

• E.

• F.

Seek assistance from other boats in the formation.

A. Raise the alarm immediately (by making the 'I am stopping' signal).
C. Use two oars to keep the boat clear of the rest of the formation.
E. Make ready to receive assistance or a tow and direction from a pace boat.
Explanation
In the event of engine failure while in formation, the first action should be to raise the alarm immediately by making the 'I am stopping' signal. This is important to inform others in the formation about the situation. The next action is to use two oars to keep the boat clear of the rest of the formation, ensuring that it doesn't collide with other boats. Lastly, it is important to make ready to receive assistance or a tow and direction from a pace boat, as this will help in safely resolving the situation. Seeking assistance from other boats in the formation and attempting to repair the engine are not mentioned as actions to be taken in this scenario.

• A.

YES, there are legal limits on how much fuel can be carried and the only way to ensure that fuel is transported safely and legally is for each crew to bring their own fuel.

• B.

NO, we will be able to find it somehow locally

A. YES, there are legal limits on how much fuel can be carried and the only way to ensure that fuel is transported safely and legally is for each crew to bring their own fuel.
Explanation
The answer is YES because the statement clearly states that each crew is responsible for supplying their own fuel, including spare fuel. This implies that there are legal limits on how much fuel can be carried, and the only way to ensure that fuel is transported safely and legally is for each crew to bring their own fuel. The statement also dismisses the possibility of finding fuel locally, indicating that it is not a viable option. Therefore, the correct answer is YES.

NO, HQ will provide large numbers of people to manhandle the boat.

A. YES, all boats will need to be launched and recovered on slipways by hand.
Explanation
The correct answer is YES, all boats will need to be launched and recovered on slipways by hand. This means that the Trinity 500 launching trolley is necessary to assist in the process of launching and recovering the Trinity boats. Without the trolley, it would be difficult and impractical to manually handle the boats on slipways. Therefore, it is important to have the launching trolley to ensure a smooth and efficient process.
